(INEWSGUYANA) A 33-year-old father from the community Linden, who is being accused of raping his 8-year-old daughter, and who was scheduled to on Friday 13th, failed to happen after the suspect apparently had a seizure outside of the Courtroom.
Officers attempted to use Limacol to revive the man but this proved futile. He was subsequently rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) for medical attention.
According to information received, the 8-year-old girl allegedly walked into a probation office on her way home from school, and disclosed to the resident probation officer that she was being sexually abused.
INews understands that after a medical examination was done, it was confirmed that she was indeed being sexually molested.
The suspect was subsequently arrested and the child was placed into the custody of her aunt.
Family members have also confirmed that the child was being abused both sexually and physically for quite a while now, allegedly at the hands of her father.
